Yes, that is right. I just got mad one night about the number
of link spam comments that Axiom Wiki was collecting and I
decided I didn't want to keep adding more and more patterns
after the fact, so I entered a banned_links pattern of


This has the effect of killing any comment or edit that
contains something that looks like an HTML link

StructuredText/Pamphlet page types. What do you think?
